    Finished this during my trip to the woods.

    First comprehensive work I've read that dealt exclusively with the battle. I'm going to see that place before I pass if at all possible.

    The thumbnail looks like roll of toilet paper. Maybe your story of how you bagged your elk had me thinking in that direction already.

    It is a solemn place. I stood at the fence where the Union soldiers waited on Pickett's charge: it's a long walk across.that field.

    Replaced that STUPID 15 amp 3AG fuse in the DC system on the generator with a 15 amp circuit breaker that I ordered last week.

    When did STUPID become a brand name?

    I know that the F word is a brand name in New York. You hear construction workers use it all the time.

    What's the DC system for, battery charging? If so, some engineer needs to be worked over with a belt sander and made to swim laps in a vat of alcohol. Surge current right after starting will go to 30-40 amps at least, more if you have to crank awhile before it starts.

    Worse - if this fuse blows, it won't crank; its the entire control system. If the battery is low, the fuse blows. Ask me how I know this... :cuss:

    Granted, its an old battery that needs to be replaced, blah, blah, blah. :blah: When I finally get this thing hooked up in its final configuration, I'll spring for a new battery...

    We always started our power generators in the Army and let the oil pressure and other gauges build up and then flipped the switches/Ckt Bkrs to apply power to the equipment we had hooked up to them. Never keep the switches on what you are running power to on, wait for the Gen to get started and the "Thumbs Up" signal from the operator. At least that is the way it was supposed to be done.

    Course there were gauges you could tell before applying power what the output was , except the smallest ones like 5 and 10KW. I worked with a lot of 15KW/30KW/45KW and we had 100KWs to switch from commercial power to tactical power on fixed missile sites.

    I should say we 'Flashed' a switch that tested things and had a gauge on the instrument panel saying what it was producing to the loads. Long time ago..............

    Even with the new home generators that isn't a bad idea. Let it come up to speed and make sure is operating at correct voltage, and then sequentially turn on breakers to load the generator. Immediately going to full load is hard on the generator. Easier on the equipment being supplied, too.

    You speaking of generators in the service reminds me of one we had aboard ship. It was a JP5 fueled emergency turbine that was forward of my division berthing compartment. It supplied power to the radar and weapons systems. It was running during a test and somehow got water in the air intake. That was exciting. :silly:

    Headed to the rifle range this morning. Just taking the .22 bolt and .45 Colt lever guns. Definitely in need of some trigger therapy. Temps have finally dropped here a bit. It's 56 now, should be 60-65 when we get there. It's a busy public range, so it can get a little crazy. But we beat the crowds by getting there early, shoot for a couple hours and bolt. Stop someplace for lunch on the way home. Nap and clean guns this afternoon. Should be a nice day!

And nobody here but me to eat them. :drool2::tooth: I like devils food cake mix doughnuts with milk chocolate frosting, too. And chocolate fudge, and white cake mix doughnuts with chocolate frosting. Mmmmmm! MINE, ALL MINE! :tooth:

    I'm lazy. I use a Betty Crocker cake mix. That making stuff from scratch is for the birds, except for biskits 'n' cornpone.
